Well, sadly Ben Wolfinsohn‘s animated journal blog My Odd Days has finally come to an end. The final episode is a crashing, fantastically self-referential climax in which he’s forced to choose between his real and animated lives. His existential ultimatum takes place, appropriately, at the Playboy mansion.
Wolfinsohn’s decision to call it a day doesn’t come as all that much of a surprise. Originally updated every other day, recent episodes have been fewer and farther between. The online comic will be sorely missed, but as hinted at throughout the series some of Wolfinsohn’s work may be headed for TV (which while not as cool probably pays better). I just hope he’s not headed for Mexico.
